Brother HL 5250 DN status shows "error". Won't print.
My recently purchased HL 5250 DN was printing fine until today. Status showed that printer was ready. I sent a document to printer and nothing happened. I checked status and it said "error". What is wrong and what can I do to fix problem?

Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Brother HL 2040 Printer Repair solution for multiple page jams For more Info ... My Brother HL2030 laser printer is making a groaning/grinding noise on ..... FIX YOUR PRINTER: ERROR: Printer Does not Grab Paper fromTray ...
Normally nothing to e alarmed about. As you said, it still appera to print okay. This flasing is a warning that your toner is low and will soon need to be replaced. If you recently replaced the toner artridge and know this not to be the case, print out a supplies status page from the onboard menu to see if it show low. Sometimes we are not aware of how much we have printed, hence the warning and the printer is usually right.
If you recently purchased it, just put it back in the box and take it back to the store for a replacement. I wouldn't bother tryng to fix it if you can get a brand new one that works the way it's supposed to.
Hello , First, please make sure there is no error message displayed on the LCD screen of the printer Now we will check the status of your printer in the printers menu in the control panel. The printer’s status should be set to “ready” If the printer is “paused” simply clear the print queue, right click on the printer and select “resume printing”. If the printer says “offline”, follow these steps.
Clear the printer queue
Shut down the computer
Unplug the USB cable from your computer and your printer
Unplug the power cable from the printer and wait 15 seconds
Plug the USB cable back into the printer and the computer.
Plug the printer’s power cable back in.
Turn your computer back on.
Your printer status should be back to ready now and you are able to print. Thanks,
Try this.... 1: Turn off power and remove toner/drum 2: Tape the little spring loaded lever just inside the printer on the upper left hand side in the *DOWN* position! Do not replace drum yet and... 3: Turn power on to printer and let it cycle. Status/Toner lights will come on as usual. 4: Turn off printer, remove tape from lever, replace drum and turn back on.
When the drum light is on solid, it's time for a new drum, if you have a new drum, just open the front door and hold the go button til all lights flash and the drum is reset. Press the go button 3 times and it will print a sheet showing the drum status.
If it's the same as the Brother 4070 you go into printer proerties (press properties next to printer selector after sending a document to print). Choose the advanced tab, on this tab near the top are five buttons with icons on, the second one shows two pages with A and B on, press this to access the duplex and binding options. In there change from "flip on top edge" to "flip on left edge"
I had the same problem on 4 Brother HL-5250's, I checked the whole printer, and couldn't find a paper jam, yet the red printer light wouldn't shut off. I finally followed the instructions on Brother's website for removing a paper jam, and the solution for all 4 printers was paper stuck in the fuser cover. See below on how to open the fuser cover.
Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1).
There are 2 kinds of covers at the rear of the printer. Please make sure to open both the back cover (step 7) and the fusercover (step8).
